No permits will be issued before classes begin for the semester in which the permit is needed.    For non-calculus courses that are full, send a email to request written permission from the professor to enter their course. They may keep a waitlist to submit to the Math staff once classes have begun. We will reaccess this process as we move closer to the start of classes. 

Penn-in-Touch will drop your registration/s if your are not registered for both the recitation and the corresponding lecture. We advise students to continue checking Penn-In-Touch up until the first day of classes as previously closed classes may open up as students continue to adjust their schedules. 

We only issue permits for closed classes if the closed section is the only section that fits in the students schedule and space is available. We do not issue permits for LPS (evening) courses unless all the daytime sections conflicts with the students schedule. The permit will be revoked when the conflict ceases to exist.

If you have conflicts due to sports, you must contact Rosemary Burnett in the Athletics Dept., Weightman Hall, 898-9479 or email her at, she will verify your conflict to the Math office.


The Math Office is located on the 4th floor of DRL, 33rd and Walnut, next to room 4C2. All request for permits for closed and evening classes must be done in person (Due to Covid-19, there will be no in-person contact).
